There Is A Point In Your Life...(For Mother Earth) - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

it comes as a surprise
even to you
when someone looks upon you

how you spend so much money
on what they call as useless
profitless ventures
and all their eyes show the worry
of a loser
much like a son first meeting
the prodigal shape of
a face

for you

at this point in your life
spend much of what you have
in viewing the majesty of a waterfall
the trip on the hidden hills
the foot-walk and
the silence of the bats hanging
on those forest trees
the springs of water below
the foot of those hills
and its virginal


you say nothing
you give a smile to yourself to this triumph
when what they have viewed as non-essential
have become too pleasing
to your soul


you just know it
at the end there is no regret
you are merely admiring the beauty of this earth
following the curves of its body
burying yourself in the coldness
of its arms

and telling it

that there is no love greater than this
knowing mother
telling her that you want a space
between her
